Hey CVC, The weather looks great all weekend - light cloud cover and a perfect 75 degrees! We will have 3 local rides each day this weekend.
On Saturday the Red Ride is heading straight up and over Westlake, down Encinal, back up Decker, down Mulholland and back up Potrero (yea, this one will be a challenge, come prepared). The Orange ride is heading out Hidden Valley to PCH and back up Mulholland. The Gold ride is looping around Oak Park and back through Newbury Park to Lawrence and the Cruisin routes behind Ventu Parkway.
On Sunday the Red Ride is going over Westlake to Simi Valley and doing both Lost and Long Canyons. The G.O. Ride is doing Malibu Lake and Mulholland, with a portion of Lower Piuma. And the social ride is heading for a nice loop up around Valley Spring and back through Oak Park and Fountainwood.
We've also got midweek rides Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, including the return of our famous Rock Store Race Ride (with moderate options), a Wednesday afternoon spin with Sheri and challenging destination rides Tuesday and Thursday mornings.
When riding with your groups, please be very verbal and watch for debris in the bike lanes. Always warn riders behind you of everything approaching! You are their eyes when you are on the front.
Our Purple and Newcomer rides are getting a good turn-out. Please help spread the word and bring friends! Our next Purple ride is scheduled for next weekend - Saturday the 25th. Come join us and bring family and friends. Easy cruise ride for all ride levels.
Let me know if I can help with anything bike or ride-related. I always have extra gear, nutrition, supplies and my toolbox, pump, etc. And let's ride!

ADDITIONAL NOTES The Purple ride is considered a no drop. Having said that, please note that if you are falling behind or slower than the average pace, you may be dropped. All rides not asterisked are considered a "drop ride" so please understand the route before you start (and how to get back). If you get to a regrouping spot and no one is there, consider yourself dropped. As always, we will try to stick together and have a fun, safe ride. We will regroup regularly to allow everyone a chance to ride together.
If for any reason you leave a group ride, please pass along the information to the ride leader.
Inclement weather policy: In the interest of safety, whenever it is either actively raining or the ride route has wet roads, it is our club policy to cancel a club ride. Club members may still choose to meet and ride in these conditions; however, the ride will not be considered an official club ride.
